Max Changmin’s expression of affection for his partner on the day after the Jeju Island match drew the attention of many of his viewers.

The singer had to leave in the early morning because of his busy schedule and was seen off by Lee Jong Soo. Footage of Max Changmin expression his gratitude for his partner during an interview with the staff was added to the scene.

Max Changmin also handed Lee Jong Soo a t-shirt with a long letter written on it as he left the team’s lodgings.

Meanwhile, the celebrity team unfortunately lost to the Jochun-team with a score of 4:0.

Changmin’s message to Lee Jong Soo

Hyung… I think the words I said most often to you.. were ‘I’m sorry’…
Really.. The misfortune of meeting the wrong partner meant that we never had enough time to practice, and that probably didn’t put your heart at ease at all..
You saw me feeling bad every time we saw each other, but you always reassured me and told me it was okay… I’m.. so grateful…^^
For the past two months that I’ve spent with you, I’ve sincerely loved you, and followed your lead…^^
Thanks to you, I’ve become a brighter person… and the past two months of my life were filled with happiness…
I believe that I’ll continue to look up to you as ‘Lee Jong Soo’, the hyung I love…
We spent the Summer of 2013 together.. and it was hotter than ever, wasn’t it…?^^
Let’s keep seeing each other and continuing our legacy as the Blazing Brothers^^
I love you♡^,,,^V

[TRANS] 130821 ‘Our Neighborhood’s Master’ Viewership Continues To Rise Despite Max Changmin And Lee Jong Soo’s Loss


‘Our Neighborhood’s Master of Variety and Sports’ is becoming the new blue chip of KBS variety shows.

According to Nielsen Korea, the episode of KBS 2TV’s variety show ‘Our Neighborhood’s Master of Variety and Sports’ that aired on the 20th scored a nationwide viewership of 8.4%. This is a 0.9% rise from last week’s episode (7.5%). It is slowly but surely gaining popularity.

This day’s episode followed the badminton match between the celebrity team and the Busan Doogu-dong team.

TVXQ’s Max Changmin and actor Lee Jong Soo were the last pair to play, and it must have been because of the pressure, but they were unable to score a single point till they had to take a time out. The pair lost and the Busan Doogu-dong team clinched an overall victory.

Max Changmin said, “I wasn’t in the best of conditions because I arrived back in Korea this morning, so I wasn’t in the right head space. I think saying that it was because I was suffering from jet lag is just an excuse. Although I feel sad about losing this match, I did my best. I would to thank all the other players for practicing late into the night.”

Meanwhile, MBC’s ‘PD Notebook’ scored a 5.0% viewership while SBS’ ‘Hwashin’ scored a 5.2% viewership.

[TRANS] 130814 ‘Our Neighborhood’s Master’ Hits Its Highest Viewership Of 7.5% With Max Changmin’s Endless Charm


Max Changmin has become the shield of ‘Our Neighborhood’s Master of Variety and Sports’. During the episode of KBS 2TV’s ‘Our Neighborhood’s Master of Variety and Sports’ that aired on the 13th, the celebrity team had their first away badminton match in Doogu-dong, Busan.

On this day, Max Changmin’s stunning visuals became a topic as hot as the matches that took place. Though the matches were so tight that it was difficult to guess who would come out on top, the Doogu-dong team began talking about Max Changmin’s good looks rather than the game.

With the voices of the female players getting louder, Shin Da Seul, an elementary school student (10) said, “It would have been nice to have gone against Max Changmin,” while Lee Shi Jung (27) said, “I would feel great playing against him, even if I lost.”

With the phrase, “How could I possibly smash the birdie at that (good-looking) face?” summing up their feelings for Max Changmin, his out-of-this-world good looks may become the celebrity team’s greatest weapon.

During the team’s first badminton match against the Joonggok-dong team, a woman on the opposing team took one look at Nickhun’s burning gaze and said, “I can’t serve this birdie.” With Max Changmin’s good looks now becoming a hot topic and stopping the female players in their tracks, the power of the celebrity team’s ‘handsome guy’ has hit full force.

After the episode, netizens left comments such as, “Changmin’s cheers were loud and energetic”, “It was great to see families participating in sports together.. It was heartwarming~”, “It must be amazing to go head to head in a badminton match against Max Changmin.. I’d be wondering if I was I was dreaming or not.”

Meanwhile, the celebrity team’s hard efforts are paying off with a rise in viewership for the show. ‘Our Neighborhood’s Master of Variety and Sports’ recorded a 0.2% rise in ratings this week to come to a total of a 7.5%, the highest viewership the show’s ever had.

[TRANS] 130731 Max Changmin Says, “The Show Has Helped Change My Bitter And Depressed Personality” (Interview)

Our Changmin has changed~’

TVXQ’s Max Changmin is currently busy training for KBS 2TV’s ‘Our Neighborhood’s Master of Variety and Sports’. Although he has a packed overseas schedule as a singer, he always works hard to complete his missions for the show and is reaping in great success as an emcee. He has won over his viewers with his hard work and effort.



Max Changmin himself is very happy that he was able to join the ‘Our Neighborhood’s Master’ team. During an interview with Newsen, Max Changmin said, “My life has become more enjoyable. I actually found it hard to approach others first and I used to be quite an introvert, but I’ve become more of an extrovert thanks to this show. Exercising and participating in matches together has helped form a natural camaraderie with the others, and I find it easier to keep an eye on those around me.”

Anyone who watches the show can see just how much Max Changmin loves his fellow teammates, and how hard he works for every match and practice session. One of his bowling matches in early July had viewers reaching out for the singer when he cried over an unfortunate loss. Though it was not aired, Max Changmin was crying so hard that he was unable to say his closing comments. The staff came to the decision to cut that scene from the episode.

Regarding this, Max Changmin confessed, “I had become close friends with the other guys like Kang Ho Dong, Lee Soo Geun, Lee Byung Jin, Alex and Jo Dal Hwan and I felt even more disappointed at the loss because I had worked so hard to prepare for the match. I had practiced so hard, giving up my breaks in between our concerts in Japan, so I felt even more upset that I lost. I really wanted to end the match on a high… I felt sorry to the others and I felt disappointed at myself. There were so many emotions running through me.”

According to Max Changmin’s close acquaintances, he is the kind of person who always works hard at what he does. Not even the smallest things pass by him unattended to. Because of this, he has felt an immense sense of responsibility about appearing on the show. Staff members who saw the ripped skin on his hands from bowling too much even said, “Your primary job is being a singer. Focus on that. Take care of yourself so that you can focus on your concerts as well.”

However, Max Changmin refused to give up his Japanese concerts or his bowling matches. He had always laid low during his breaks, but since beginning the show, he began going to bowling alleys whenever he had a moment to spare and kept practicing as much as he could. Max Changmin said, “Practicing and getting used to the sports made me feel more at ease with myself. I think that’s why the tears came after I lost. I think those tears were proof that I’ve gotten more comfortable with the show.”

The singer has gained so much through the show. Not only has he become close friends with people such as Lee Soo Geun, Jo Dal Hwan and Kang Ho Dong, and has currently become closer with stars such as John Park and 2PM’s Chansung. He has been meeting with Chansung for dinner often and they have finally begun to feel more comfortable around each other for the first time in years.

Max Changmin smiled and said, “The kid who used to stay at home and sit around every day is now sweating it out and moving around. It’s helped a lot with my personality. In the past, I used to feel very bitter and depressed. But participating in sports activities through the show has helped me release my stress faster and it’s making me much happier. I’m grateful to myself for taking on this challenge. I’ve found a new sense of vitality in my life.”
